Short-Term Running Goals:

Keep on running, enjoy it for the sake of running, relax and enjoy life...de stress.

No racing, retired.

 

Long-Term Running Goals:

Keep running until this old body says no, running for fun.

Support my wife's endeavor to do long distance road biking and her renewed interest in running! Keep biking more with her as cross training maybe do a Century ride.

 

Personal:

Born in 1968.  I live in Idaho Falls, ID.  I started running competitively in 2005 and ran my first marathon in 2005. Now retired.

Married for 25+ years with two children (19 and 16).

Bend down, O Lord, and hear my prayer;
answer me, for I need your help.
Protect me, for I am devoted to you.
Save me, for I serve you and trust you.
You are my God.
Be merciful to me, O Lord,
for I am calling on you constantly.
Give me happiness, O Lord,
for I give myself to you.
O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive,
so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.
Listen closely to my prayer, O Lord;
hear my urgent cry.
I will call to you whenever I’m in trouble,
and you will answer me.  - Psalm 86:1-7

7M this morning before church in cold and wind.  Just an easy recovery run on my short day at a 7:00 pace.

Woke up with a slight stomach ache but went out early for a 9M run.  Weather was ok, 22 degrees and a light wind.  Pace was slow and easy so as not to push my stomach issues.

I am in a training class all this week so I don't yet know how many, if any, lunch runs I will get in.  So, I am going to try and make my morning runs between 9-11 miles. (T3)

A quick run at lunch, 3.5M around the Freeman Park pathway at 6:10 pace.  This is likely the most I am going to get all week due to the class.  (T2)

It was cold and windy out this morning, so I opted for the TM at the gym to do some hill work.  9M in 56:20 varying incline between 2% (base incline) and 6.5%.  Varied pace between 6:44 (w/u) and 5:36 (0.5M), averaging 6:25 for the run.  Overall felt really good and the pace and incline were pretty easy this morning.  (Stratos 3)

3.1M around Freeman Park at lunch in very cold and very windy.  Nice easy 7:00 pace, left achilles a bit of a twing but not bad...will watch it.  (T2)

9M on the TM at the gym at an average pace of 6:23.  Didn't feel like dealing with the cold and wind (home thermometer said 15 degrees) and a cool breeze.  When I got the gym I felt like a wimp because it really wasn't that bad outside...oh well, I was already there in shorts and singlet and didn't have time to change my mind.  To work early today to get some stuff done before class.  (Stratos 3)

3.3M at lunch around Freeman Park in 20:20.  Weather was sunny, no wind but still cold.  1M - 5:57, 2M - 6:10, 3M - 6:10, 0.3M cooldown.  Good run, but don't like the fact that I slowed down for the last 2 miles.  (T2)

8M on the TM at the gym this morning since it was 10 degrees outside and I again didn't feel like braving the cold.   Average pace of 6:25 with 1M at 5:49.  Had a little twing in the left foot and I got a pretty good side ache at one point that I got over by just really concentrating on my breathing pattern.  Had to go short today so Kami could get to the gym early.  (Stratos 3)

4.4M at lunch around the river on a very nice day...sun, no wind, still a bit cold.  6:53 average, nice and easy.  (T2)

11 degrees outside, too cold...8M on the TM at the gym at 6:28 pace...ugh!  Off to finish class at work on my day off.  (Stratos 3)

5M after work on a wonderful afternoon.  2M with my kids as they rode their bikes (really easy), then 3M in 1.5M laps around the neighborhood so I could swing by the house to check on them (Kami is at the gym).  Total time: 37:24.  (Stratos 2)

Met Andrea, McKay and MaryAnn from Provo at Community park on a really nice morning, warmer and no wind.  15M at an average 7:05 pace...some easy with Andrea and McKay and about 4M total of faster pickups with MaryAnn (one segment was a nice 5:45 1M).  Overall a decent run, nothing to special to report.   Andrea ran great even with a sore back and McKay was really running a great pace but stopped early because he was having trouble breathing.
